IKEA is one of the largest furniture companies in the world. They produce just about everything you would ever need in your home. The company was founded in Sweden in 1943 by a man named Ingvar Kamprad who lived in Elmtaryd, Agunnaryd. It took the first letters of his name and hometown to create the IKEA name.
IKEA has been the focus of many discussions. Many people claim that IKEA is not creating quality products, while others love everything about them. The discussion is likely to last long, but what we can deduce is that everyone has their own needs and expectations from a furniture store. Here are some reasons why IKEA is a good choice for you.
1. The price
This is probably IKEA’s biggest advantage. They have a reputation for being really cheap. You can get pretty much everything for your home at a discounted price compared to other stores.
2. Self-assembling products.
This is probably why IKEA is so cheap. In addition, it allows you to easily transport furniture home. Furniture instructions are generally really easy to understand, and putting the furniture into operation is no problem.
3. Great furniture design.
This is another registered trademark of IKEA. Their innovative designs have changed the furniture industry forever. Their cute and simple designs have actually brought out a lot of new stores to try and copy them. They have failed in nearly the same way as IKEA.
IKEA does its best to make the furniture as eco-friendly as possible. They make their furniture with natural materials such as wood. And it is not a normal wood. It comes from well-preserved forests. In addition, at IKEA you can find many eco-friendly products such as low energy light bulbs.
5. Store design.
IKEA stores are designed to make it really easy to find exactly what you are looking for. It really makes shopping a joy.
6. The coffee.
When you need a break from shopping, IKEA offers excellent coffee that offers practically everything your stomach wants.
IKEA may be one of the most hated furniture stores, but it’s certainly also one of the best. If you can’t find what you’re looking for on IKEA, you probably won’t find it anywhere else. When you can mix the vast number of options you have with pleasant shopping in a fantastic environment, you know you have chosen the right furniture store.
